Jonathan Ames, a young Brooklyn writer, is feeling lost. He’s just gone through a painful break-up, thanks in part to his drinking, can’t write his second novel, and carouses too much with his magazine editor. Rather than face reality, Jonathan turns instead to his fantasies — moonlighting as a private detective — because he wants to be a hero and a man of action.
The offbeat comedy series ‘Bored to Death,’ created by Jonathan Ames (author of several books, including the acclaimed graphic novel ‘The Alcoholic’), follows the misadventures of a fictional Jonathan Ames as he pursues his quixotic dream of emulating his heroes from classic private detective novels.
Episode #8 last night aired titled “Take a dive” The Volcano Vaporizer scene went like this…. for their (Jonathan and his new girl) second date, Stella shares her new vaporizer [Volcano Vaporizer with Solid Valve] with Jonathan and they make love. Though she’s a painter, she offers advice she got from a writing teacher: “Only write about what you love.” Jonathan says he loves his private detective work, and she urges him to write about that.
One of the funny moments of the show last night was when Jonathan was explaining the night to his boss, played by Ted Danson and how Jonathan really likes Stella – Ted Danson’s reply to his emotional opening about his night was “I want to try a vaporizer.”
